Hot, hot, hot

It’s always been weird to live in a place where the weather is so different from everywhere else (also, awesome), but this year has been super strange. While everyone else is experiencing the polar vortex, we have been having some of the warmest, driest months on record. We basically just didn’t have winter.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s glorious to have sunny 70-degree days in January, but the lack of rain is starting to becoming worrisome. Not only does the weather leave a smoggy mass sitting over the bay area, it is also causing big problems for farmers without water. We have a spare-the-air day pretty much daily. 

My plants are all confused. They think it’s spring. I can’t believe how many flowers are on my succulents out front.

We are planning a picnic birthday party for Harper. Because we might as well — we know it won’t rain!
